    I just got a low mileage CF19 mk7, I upgraded the RAM to 16GB, replaced the 128GB SSD it came with to a 512GB SSD. Boot time is under 10 seconds, and every device driver is installed. Glad I got it. I still have my mk4, I am undecided what to do with it, I might use the 128GB SSD I took out of the mk7 and install Ubuntu on it, is anyone running Ubuntu on a 19?

    On the display beze, lower right front of the mk7 is a silver circle approximately 3/8" with a dark circle in the center approximately 1/8".

    Anybody know what it is?

    It's a ambient light sensor.
    Yes Ubuntu runs well on cf19 units

    So I have the mk4 running Ubuntu 20.04.

    Any direction on how to calibrate the touchscreen and get the tablet buttons working?

    I haven't noticed anything else not working, so far......
